I am super excited to share my review with you on publication day for Mark Tilbury’s 10th book, Song Of The Psychopath.
A year after going missing from home, Tommy Scarlett is found unconscious in an isolated country road. He has a fractured skull, broken wrist, and numerous other injuries. Recovering in hospital, Tommy has no recollection of the past. He doesn’t even recognize his own family.
After returning home, Tommy suffers severe headaches and acute depression. Desperate to help him, his father puts him into the care of a private therapist. But Tommy soon learns his troubles are far from over.
As the past is slowly unlocked, it becomes increasingly clear that Tommy has suffered an ordeal so horrendous it beggars belief. And those responsible are determined to silence him by any means possible.
Can Tommy find out what really happened to him and bring those responsible to justice?
Or will the past finally catch up with him and finish him off for good?
Holy smoke Tilbury is known for being twisted but my god this story is darker than dark. Tilbury is on fire with his latest novel. It is an absolutely freaking brilliant story.
This is NOT for the faint hearted you either like dark or you don’t. I always say the darker the better and this book makes some really uncomfortable reading. Which is how I like it.
Song of The psychopath will scare the shit out of you, because it did me! When we meet Tommy He has a fractured skull, broken wrist, and numerous other injuries. Recovering in hospital, Tommy has no recollection of the past. He doesn’t even recognize his own family.
I couldn’t help but feel sorry for him and his frustration. Tommy starts to see a private therapist and the events of what happened to him start to appear. Filling the cracks we follow Tommy on an emotional, engrossing terrifying journey. Which will make the hairs on your neck stand up due to the subject matter of child abuse.
Songs of the psychopath is an addictive page turner. I simply couldn’t put this book down. It is full of twists and turns and OMG moments that made me gasp. I cannot recommend it enough, if you like a toe curling read this is the book for you.
